The Old Cemetery Galicija

According to an old iron mine can go to the old cemetery Galicija. Used was from 1897 to 1967. In my opinion, this is one scary places in LC Galicija. If you are not afraid of the dark, you just visit the evening :). The cemetery is no longer in use, but has somewhat served, but has a lot of old and interesting monuments.
